Mother's Day Cards
The first card is made with a free digi I found at by Nina B Designs. I colored the hydrangeas with colored pencils and blended them with blending stumps and Goo Gone. The sentiment is by PSX and the paper by DCWV Once Upon a Time set.
The next card uses the Marcella by Kay paper. The lace is some of my stash trims that I have from my mom. The butterfly from Victorine Originals is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on paper that I used the spray starch technique on. I followed the tutorial on the gg designs Gazette by Deb Lovett, and I really love the results. I haven't used much of my Pearl Ex, so I was happy to see something I could actually do without having to buy a bunch of other products. The rhinestones were from packages of bling I bought from Tuesday Morning, but I'm sorry I can't remember who makes them.
Hero Arts made this gorgeous Paris Rose image that was stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I very lightly colored the image and old writing paper with colored pencils and blended with baby oil. The design paper was from The Paper Studio and I think the ribbon is May Arts. I love these easy peasy cards that have such a sophisticated look!
The last card for now is another Victorine Originals butterfly that is stamped with Memento Tuxedo Black ink. I used some more of my gorgeous paper using the Spray Starch Technique. The grey mulberry butterfly was in my stash, but it looked so nice as a shadow with this image. The lace stamp is an oldie that doesn't have a name on it. After cutting off the bottom edge of the card, I added rhinestones in the flower centers and on the butterfly's head. The swirls were a 99 cent package of stickers from Target.
